In this course we shall explore some of the concepts, issues and theories that apply when working as a member of a team. Some of these factors are generally applicable to all teams – both face-to-face and virtual. Other factors are enhanced, reduced or changed by the degree to which the team is a virtual team.
After studying this course, you should be able to:
- understand the issues and processes that relate to team formation and development in a virtual context
- identify barriers to effective team work in a virtual environment and propose solutions
- review and comment on team activities in a virtual environment and develop insights to make informed judgements and recommendations for future good practice
- synthesize theory and practical experience to make recommendations for good practice in new team environments.
